Category Archives: Valentine’s Day

My husband and I have a weekly standing date night.  Last year we realized the importance of time spent focused just on one another with the interruption of kids, household tasks, etc.  I get a lot of questions/comments when I post our date nights on Instagram and what I hear most is that most people aren’t able to get babysitters or that they don’t have room for a date night out in their budget but they still could really use a date night.  I get it!  And thought I would compile a list of 25 ideas for date night in!

Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year we will be celebrating with our littles.  We did the same last year and it was fun creating our own traditions like making a heart shaped pizza for dinner.  We’ve all fallen in love with cheese plates and I thought we’d make it festive by making a Valentine cheese plate this year.

When it came to this year’s Valentines I tried to do something that didn’t involve candy and that also reflected my kid’s personalities.  Hudson loves Minecraft and Ella loves art and to color.

I spotted some Valentine candy bouquets at our local grocery store for $26 a pop!  I thought they would be cute for my kiddos this Valentine’s Day so I thought I would give making them at home a whirl.  I had the mason jars, skewers, and ribbon on hand so the candy bars and bagged candy cost me less than $20 for two bouquets.  Here’s how I made them:
